Bills' Mike Williams limited by leg injury during workouts
Throughout all of the Organized Team Activities and the three-day minicamp, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Mike Williams wasn’t getting as many reps during practice as was expected for a player with his talent level. The reason for his slow start has now been unveiled.
“We started off where, they threw me out there and I was just going every rep, and then the leg started getting to me,” Williams said, referring to a previous injury. “Then they started holding me back more and more, but then I started getting my leg back, they were giving me more reps. It was really the leg, but I should be 100-percent by camp.”
The injury that ended his season prematurely in Tampa Bay during the 2013 season was a torn hamstring, and one that he had a procedure on. Now with a substantial amount of time off from practices, Williams is hoping for his leg to get back in order by the time training camp rolls around.
“I'm almost there. I keep telling them I'm at 80-percent, they're telling me I'm at 70-percent. We're going back and forth, but, I think I'm getting there,” he said. “With this month right now until camp, I think I'll be 100-percent coming into camp.”
Williams had been seen in recent weeks losing out on some first-team reps after starting out with the top unit at the beginning of OTAs. On Thursday, the team’s final mandatory minicamp practice, the Buffalo-native was sprinkled into a few first-team reps during three wide receiver sets.
The Bills acquired Williams this offseason from Tampa Bay for a sixth-round pick.
